I think Butch Anthony's brother used to work for the Spano family, not sure, I'd have to ask Butch.

All about the money now though. Ten dollars just to get in, no thanks, I'll pass.
Yes, sorry, Doo-Nanny is now $10 admission to help cover costs of putting the shindig on.

That's a pretty small price to pay for an entire weekend of art, music and eclectic entertainment.

I bet at the most $1 out of the $10 admission goes toward the cost of the event, The rest will go into the organizers pockets.

I think from this point forward we all show refer to the event as;
$DooNanny$

Lets do this to illustrate our opposition to the greed that many have mentioned here!

Commando... are you really that clueless?

Of course the $$$ will go to the organizers... most likey to Butch Anthony, who owns the farm Doo-Nanny takes place on.

I think this notion that Doo-Nanny should remain "free" is a bit silly, and I wager most other folks will, as well.

Here's the NYT article, so protesters can contact them:

Ten dollars for three days of entertainment and you complain?

Have you seen the prices of movies, concerts, anything thse days?

And that's something that may have elluded you... Doo-Nanny is being written up in places like the New York Times now, hardy just a "small social event" at this point, and in fact was a world class art and music event years ago:

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/08/garden/08do...

"...LIKE a medieval village, Butch Anthony’s 80-acre family compound is a self-contained universe, and every inch of it is an expression of his prodigious creative spirit. It makes a tempting destination for folk art aficionados, as well as the sort of art world tourists who’ve already ticked Marfa, Tex., or Joshua Tree, in the California desert, off their lists. Mr. Anthony, a lanky and laconic 46-year-old who dresses exclusively in Liberty denim overalls (he owns 25 pairs) and a battered straw hat (he has 10), is a self-taught artist, builder and local hero, whom the state of Alabama once chose to make a Christmas tree ornament for the White House — the Bush 43 version. He is also the host of the Doo Nanny..."

"...Like Burning Man, the extreme art fair held each summer in the Nevada desert, the Doo Nanny offers both a burning effigy and an exercise in creative camping. Mr. Anthony has thoughtfully provided a tepee, an outdoor kitchen, a solar-powered shower, outhouses and a wood-fueled hot tub, all built from and decorated with the sort of handmade trash-into-art pieces — ethereal chandeliers pieced together with cow bones and twigs gnawed by beavers — that are his specialty. It now attracts an intrepid crowd of makers and their fans who gather on the last weekend in March not only to show their work — and sell some, too, if they’re lucky — but to hang out with like-minded friends and partake of Mr. Anthony’s particular brand of Southern hospitality, which is certainly as homespun and country as his accent, but has an impish, renegade backbeat. It is also a chance to see Mr. Anthony on his own, very atmospheric, turf."

No, Doo-Nanny isn't for eveyone... but who would /want/ it to be?

And of course the $$$ will go to the organizers... most likey to Butch Anthony, who owns the farm Doo-Nanny takes place on.

I think this notion that Doo-Nanny should remain "free" is a bit silly, and I wager most other folks will, as well.

I just saw one design today on the Doo-Nanny FB page, I think the official poster it is. It was colorful, but didn't really turn me on that much.

Really sad that this home spun, folksy festival has gone "corporate".
For those who might of missed it this is the first year they are charging an admission plus $10.00 right out the gate!
You get nothing new either.

No, actually Doo-Nanny charged a ten buck admission last year, as well, as do most every other music festival I can think of.

If you'd actually gone to a Doo-Nanny rather than just pretending to, you'd have already known that.

But do keep up this silly prattling over the very reasonable admission fee to Doo-Nanny, as comparisons will show this is a fraction of what you'll pay at any other music festival.

Doo-Nanny charges ten bucks for a weekend of art, music and other entertainments.

Nothing "corporate" about charging a few bucks to cover expenses and pay your talent.

Well, you seem like a smart guy... if you can't afford to attend Doo-Nanny, then sorry, but you might consider skipping it this year.

Here's a free video for you, though, paid for by YouTube advertisers:

http://youtu.be/qBhcN1WK144

Red Lipped Stranger

Her creep crawls
the narrow stairway
of the Candlelight Motel
to watch for her
from a window.

Rethinking
his infatuation
but clinging
to his vision of her
as the red lipped stranger.

Downstairs
the desk clerk's cat
slithers through
the service entrance.

The vampirate
on a motorbike
passes below
to the westbound bridge
werewolf on her back.

Jennifer at riverbend
watches gunboats
smacks her foot
on the bright red clay.

Jennifer gives good lyric
she wrote this poem
she's no bum.

But she's not there
on the other side
of the greenish wall.

Through a three-inch-wall
he hears
bedsprings rattle
rustle of dry-hump,
some guy's mumbles.

Hears the fat blonde waitress
whip it in bondage
the sounds
lull him to sleep.

The hand of Uncle Sugar
still taking notes
as a new standard bearer
hands out trophies
to the winners.

His trillion dollar gash
flakes from the bone
as gravity tears
a pound of dust.

Clings to a picture book
the missing part of himself
as if perpetually
anchored
to his invisible erection.

At Lucky Seven Lounge
she tries
not to reveal herself
but she stubbornly clutches
her empty shoes.

Something
seems missing
in the broad daylight
when the details
are displayed.

All that remains are
her flat black hat
her oversized lantern
her broken laptop.

No poor boy on the street
can speak of her
or the island on the river.
Or about her return...
her resurrection.

-Will Dockery

Good examples.

Compare the prices of those festivals to the pittance Doo-Nanny is charging for a weekend of art, music and adventure.

Should be the best one ever this year from the looks of the plans.

People please read this wrote:
His song RED LIPPED STRANGER he wants you all to read the lyrics and view the links of him singing it.
*CREEPY CRAWL-is the name Squeaky Lynette Fromme gave to the practice runs the Charles Manson Family Girls did in preparation to be ready for the future Tate LaBianca break ins. A CREEPY CRAWL is breaking into someone's house while they are asleep. Moving furniture around and taking any money, jewelry or small objects of value without being caught.
Here are a few lines from the song RED LIPPED STRANGER he wants ya'll to read and watch him sing so bad. He has posted the song on the forum many, many times asking you all to read it and watch him sing it.
RED LIPPED STRANGER
Creepy Crawl
Watch her from a window
His Infatuation
Werewolf on her back
Gives good Lyric
Rustle of Dry Hump
Whip it into Bondage
To his invisible erection
These are only about a fourth of the song lyrics. He always tries to portray his music and songs as good and wholesome. You be the judge of what he is.
Wow, you've really worked on that ctitique, thanks for the hard work.

The last person I know of to review "Red Lipped Stranger" was the poet Karla Rogers a few years ago.

I'll find hers and we can add that to the gestalt as well.

Again, kudos!

This must be about lining the pockets of the organizers of Doo-Nanny because there is nothing new happening, the entertainment are local amateurs.
Again nothing whatsoever to warrant a $10.00 charge to get it.
Really, charge for drinks, food, tee-shirts, etc but why charge for admission.
Thats what I mean by going corporate and thats what Doo-Nanny is becoming.

Okay, you don't like the Doo-Nanny.

You obviously are not interested in art.

You disrespect the musical and poetry talents performing.

You might as well save that ten bucks and spend it on something you do like, anyhow.

Right?

But no, your agenda here is just another variation of what the New York Times recently reported about the anonymous trolls of Topix.com , obviously the "box' you are in, as I posted earlier today on another, related, situation:

There's a difference between "free speech" and libel, slander and other offensive behavior, and you know it.

No, the situation is nothing like that, this is your usual attempt to misrepresent and smear me on here, and of course I'm back now to correct your lies and set the record straight.

Fair enough?

I know your ilk too well that you'd never admit that events like Hogbottom or Doo-Nanny have any merit, your bitter jealousy wouldn't allow that.

Not at all, I'm a real person, posting under my real identity about real issues. You, on the other hand, are an anonymous, unregistered troll, who spends his days sniffing behind me trying to start an argument.

See the difference?

No, the particular phenomenon of the anonymous trolls that target Topix.com Forums is well defined, as this post made earlier elsewhere today explains, defined by no less than the New York Times.

The "problem and animosity" seems to be a widespread problem with anonymous trolls such as you and others, hiding behind fake names and posting lies and smears against people.

Unfortunately for you, I fight back and correct your lies and misrepresentations about me... and label you for the trash you are. Truth hurts, eh?

The fact is that I'm just a real person posting here, while anonymous trolls such as you whatever fake name you're hiding behind today, create these threads apparently from some obsessed agenda they have to attempt to smear my name, libel, and otherwise misrepresent me. And from further reading, it appears to be a sort of Topix.com phenomenon that some don't seem to be able to deal with as well as I have.

For example:

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/20/us/small-to...

"...a social media Web site called Topix, where they write and read startlingly negative posts, all cloaked in anonymity, about one another. And in Dee’s Place, people are not happy... called Topix a 'cesspool of character assassination.'[...] In rural America, older, poorer remote population lagged the rest of the country in embracing the Internet, the growing use of social media is raising familiar concerns about bullying and privacy... hubs of unsubstantiated gossip, stirring widespread resentment in communities where ties run deep, memories run long and anonymity is a novel concept.'Something about rural culture seems to make people want to have conversations in public,' Topix, a site lightly trafficked in cities, enjoys a dedicated and growing following across the Ozarks, Appalachia and much of the rural South, establishing an unexpected niche in communities of a few hundred or few thousand people..."

And, of course, there's a difference between free speech and libel. The posts made here and elsewhere on Topix.com by the trolls you asked about generally tend to fall into the latter category.

I take it you finally understand, after dozens of clueless complaining, why Doo-Nanny is charging a small admission fee now, to help cover the costs of putting the shindig on, from power to helping compensate the crew, to being able to also pay the peformers a few bucks.

A small price for a weekend of art, music and adventure.

The New York Times article on Doo-nanny also featured some splendid photos of the Doo-Nanny, which have not been linked to here yet.

Backwoods Design and the Art of a Doo Nanny - There were a core group of intrepid makers and their fans there, about 1,000 visitors on the last weekend in March.

http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2010/04/07/g...

A burning effigy was a nod to Burning Man, the extreme art camp in the Nevada desert.

http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2010/04/07/g...

The Doo Nanny, which has been held for the last three years on Mr. Anthony's property, an 80-acre family compound in the Alabama woods, is a "micro" folk-art festival.
